Why move to Greenwich?

Greenwich is the home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Meridian Line and one of London's prettiest locations. It maintains a quaint rural village feel and is steeped in history yet boasts fantastic transport links, including tube, DLR, mainline rail, bus, riverboat, foot tunnel and cable car. The area is mere minutes from Canary Wharf, the city and central London; just one of the reasons why it's increasingly popular with young professionals and commuters. Not only that, during the build up to the 2012 London Olympics, Greenwich council invested close to £20million in the area. The result is an incredible legacy to the games, including better playgrounds, schools, parks, a new Greenwich Pier, the Emirates Cable Car and 2012 new trees. Plus, there are lot of exciting new homes being built along the riverside.
